SATA and a Plextor PX-176SA DVD R drive

I don't really know what is going on here so excuse me. I can't seem to get my SATA optical drive to do anything for me with sid under kernel 2.6.11. If I lsmod I get sata_nv and sata_sil loaded on from my Asus A7N8X-E deluxe motherboard. But I don't seem to be getting any /dev/sd's showing up in my devices. The only thing connected to that is the dvd burner.

dmesg shows

sata_sil version 0.8
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:01:0b.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, high) -> IRQ 217
ata1: SATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0xF8C24080 ctl 0xF8C2408A bmdma 0xF8C24000 irq 217
ata2: SATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0xF8C240C0 ctl 0xF8C240CA bmdma 0xF8C24008 irq 217
ata1: dev 0 cfg 49:0f00 82:0000 83:0000 84:0000 85:0000 86:0000 87:0000 88:001f
ata1: dev 0 ATAPI, max UDMA/66
ata1: dev 0 configured for UDMA/66
scsi0 : sata_sil
ata2: no device found (phy stat 00000000)
scsi1 : sata_sil

cat /proc/scsi/scsi shows nothing
Attached devices:

Any idea what I need to do? Or where I should start? I have read something that make me wonder about ATAPI support being disabled in this version of the kernel. If that is the case, does this require me to enable it and recompile the kernel or something?
